Biography

Serbian painter who designed the Coat of Arms of the City of Belgrade and reputedly designed the Coat of Arms of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and Yugoslav orders and medals (along with Antun Augustinčić). He is frequently cited as a Yugoslav painter, and as a member of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts.

The inventory of his work lists some 300 paintings, among them monumental as well as the small and intimate works. More than 60 are in museums in his country and abroad, about as many are owned by government institutions and enterprises, and the rest are in private collections. Over 1000 drawings are listed; most of them held in museum collections. The few surviving complete, first-print woodcut sets of Blood-soaked Gold and For Freedom are owned by museums in Belgrade. He created three mosaics, one at the War Memorial in Ivanjica, a second on the façade of a public building in Kragujevac, and the third at the Holocaust Museum in Paris.

Djordje Andrejević-Kun died on 17 January 1964, in Belgrade, aged 59.
